The science fair is coming up again and it seems pointless right?
Well, it actually isn't. We have science fairs so we can learn the scientific method first hand. The scientific method consists of: Question/Problem, Hypothesis, Experimental Design, Data, and Conclusion. Practice makes perfect. Sometimes it can be hard to find a topic on which you can practice these steps. Mr. Turner has links for science fair ideas on www.room210.com if you need help.
The eighth grade science fair will be on Thursday Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. The judges usually expect more advanced topics from eighth graders. For example, Sarah Phillips will be testing what makes teeth decay faster, Coke or Pepsi? Adam Schilling will be testing which element to a plant is most important, soil, water, or sunlight? And Shalea Purdy will test the effects of iodine.
